Seeking equity, justice, accountability, and prosperity in the City of Saint Paul.

The City Attorney’s Office strives to create a more inclusive, safe, and welcoming city in Saint Paul. Our office provides legal advice to elected officials and city departments, represents the city in civil litigation, and prosecutes criminal cases while focusing on victim-centered programming and justice reform.

Though we cannot provide legal counsel to our residents, we have compiled a list of community resources, services, and agencies that may help. You can also learn about who to contact about your case, some of our victim-centered programming, and our criminal justice system on our Criminal Justice 101 page.
